NASA did an experiment with astronauts making them wear glasses with concave lenses that flipped the image of the world upside down to see how they might react to zero gravity. Incredibly, after 25–30 days all the astronauts’ brains flipped the inverted image and they perceived the world the right way up. Interestingly, for some astronauts who took the glasses off for a short time at day 15, it took another 25–30 days for them to experience the correction by their brains. You can’t miss a single day, it’s that important.
Small things done repeatedly over time lead to exceptional results.
It takes 30 days to form a habit, and that’s just the start.
Commit 100% to the 30 days though and my guess is that you’ll be hooked because you’ll have gained momentum.
I run a course called Board of Directors. Business owners join me for two days every three months and we go deep on their businesses, and their own personal psychology.
Recently we got some HR people in to help us improve our professional development program at MedRecruit.
People often talk about the impact they want to have… In the future.
After a crisis, most people aim to get back to the state they were in before the crisis.
Recently the World Medical Association ratified a change to the Declaration of Geneva, the modern-day Hippocratic Oath, the value-set of doctors worldwide, to include the health and wellbeing of doctors.
I was recently speaking to a group of corporates.
And I had to smile.
I speak to a lot of groups of people AND Purpose is something that I’m big on, and it invariably leads to someone asking the question, “I don’t know what I want to do. What should I do?”
“When is it giving up, and when is it changing direction?” is a question I get asked a lot.
Some people like beer.
Some people like wine.
Recently I was fortunate to attend a good friend of mine’s wedding in Bali. He’s a partner at a well-known law firm in Singapore, and many of the attendees were merchant bankers, venture capitalists and other people in the finance space.
